FIATA Shenzhen 2016 - Golden Chariot in China

 

Ceremony of Golden Chariot International Transport Award was held in Shenzhen, May 11, 2016. This time were received nine awards in various categories

The following nominees for “Achievements for Strengthening International Relationships In Transport Sector” received the Golden Chariot Award:

  • Stanley Lim Hwee Hong - Chairman of the Singapore Logistics Association (Singapore)
  • Zhao Huxiang - President of International Federation of Freight Forwarders Association (FIATA) (China)

On 12th and 13th of May 2016 FIATA and UIC jointly hosted the Meeting of the Enlarged Contact Group, inviting elites from the railway and freight forwarding industries together with relevant international organisations to Shenzhen, China, under the overarching title “Putting China-Europe on Rail”. As mentioned by FIATA President Mr. Zhao Huxiang in his opening speech, the China-Europe bilateral trade is expected to increase to around 1 Trillion USD by 2020, while less than 5% of the products are transported by rail today; FIATA sees this as a great potential for rail freight on the China-Europe rail link. President Zhao welcomes the opportunities that such a platform for global players offers in order to share experiences, visions and find innovative solutions.

This is the first time FIATA/UIC rail working group host an event in Shenzhen, which belongs to Guangdong Province of China. In his speech, Mr. Wang Yiyang, Director of Guangdong Development Research Centre, announced that Guangdong aims to become a strategic hub for sea transport and land-sea multimodal transport of Eurasia within the Chinese government’s overarching initiative known as the “Belt and Road”. FIATA and UIC found therefore plenty of reasons to host the meeting in Shenzhen, to experience this strong urge to propel logistics connectivity across two continents.

Another reason to host this meeting in China was “to build better understanding and respect among Chinese and European freight forwarders”, as expressed by Dr Ivan Petrov, FIATA Senior Vice President and Chairman of the FIATA WG Rail, “the market and practice of China and European are rather different, what we should do is to understand each other, instead of trying to change one another”, concluded Dr Petrov. Speakers from OSJD, CLECAT, UIRR, UNSECAP, ADB and many other organisations and enterprises delivered instructive presentations, the 90 participants from more than 20 countries and regions went back home with new ideas and resources and showed their enthusiasm at the closing.
